Geraint Williams

Where is Geraint Williams now?

Former Welsh midfielder Geraint Williams retired from playing in 2000 after two seasons at Colchester United.

Making over 700 first-team appearances for four clubs over a 20-year period, he won two promotions with Derby County but also endured a relegation with them as well as relegation from the Premier League with Ipswich Town.

He was also a Wales international and represented his country on 13 occasions.

Upon retiring from playing Williams stayed at Colchester as assistant manager and was appointed manager in 2006 when Phil Parkinson left the club.

After a successful first season finishing in a mid-table position, his side were unfortunately relegated the following season after losing many of their key-players and Williams left in September 2008 by mutual consent.

He then had a year-long stint at Leyton Orient before he was appointed manager of the Wales under-21’s side in 2012.

Although Williams enjoyed success in the role including improving the co-efficient ranking of the u17’s and u19’s and a successful European qualifying campaign with the u21’s, his contract wasn’t renewed and he left in December 2016.

He has since returned to Ipswich to coach within the club’s academy.
